First outing at Cannock of 2007 and boy have I missed the place, It's still ace. There's some new single track just after the big hill. I was a bit worried about going up the hill but did it, no probs. It nearly killed me once upon a time many moons ago, well not literally.. Went out with Terence, you can see us in the video. There's not much footage because we would rather ride than take pictures. Well that's my excuse for our shit filming, most of what we got was crap. It rained all day Saturday but finally stopped as we set off for the cycling. The initial sections of the ride are closed so there's a small diversion.
Well here it is, the first video to be put on my Blog, as you will see I found Windows Movie maker on my PC.. cool!

The weekend started well with Thai food and a few beers in the capital town of the island, Newport. Saturday we spent travelling around the island like tourists, quite good though. I bought a bag for her in doors thinking she would like it. How wrong can you be? I need to take it back, oh well something to do the weekend on the Bandit... Not!
Sunday was the event in the morning then after lunch an outing to Culver Cliff to play like big kids on Terrys mountain board and kite. This gear is ace, infact it's really ACE! The mountain board is ace and needs loads of practice to get good. The kite is really really really cool and you really really really need loads of practice to fly it well. This thing pulls your arms off. We were being dragged and dropped all over the place. I've not laughed so much in ages, makes you feel like a big kid again. I'm 15 stone and this kite pulled me along the ground on my face, it was ace. Can you tell what I'm gonna get.
If you want a good work out and an absolute brilliant laugh you should get one. You can fly with these, once you perfected the kite add the mountain board and guess what you've got...... yes.. A broken leg. I'm gonna finish there, when I get my phone to work I'll upload some pictures. Beware I was still recovering 3 days later, my arms are a whole inch longer and my arse a whole lot flatter.

Good day though, I enjoyed it, even getting up at stupid O'clock 7:00am. Had a blast from the past and stopped for a breakfast at MGs, hasn't changed.. I even got chance to go to Decathlon.
Oh yes, Terry, thanks for having me... See ya at the Killers....

Lots of taxis and buses if that's what you need, the Underground is great, the longest I waited today was 30 seconds. Did the tour thing on one of the tour buses, although I wouldn't go on one again. It's so much better on foot and using the tube. We saw brief glimpses of most places on the tour bus but saw loads more up close on foot.

The region was described as 'Black by day and red by night' by Elihu Burritt, the American Consul to Birmingham in 1862 and other authors, from Dickens to Shenstone, refer to the intensity of manufacturing in the Black Country and its effect on the landscape and its people. Today the Black Country is made up of most of the four Metropolitan District Council areas of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton and the collections and displays are derived from throughout these areas.
The industries included:-
coal & coke iron & steel locks & keys nails chains ships anchors glassware beer & stout

BT have just connected my new phone line, it took 12hrs from ordering to be active. Cool.
The cable co have told me that they have checked on two occasions and my house cannot and will not be connected. Well from this point forward they will be known as shite, poo, pants, crap whatever.
You work for these tossers, your concession for all services and set top boxes will cost 40 per month. BT costs 11. Walk away Bullock and do what you do... Leave it alone...
That's it, a point in History... There will be no going back...

The family are back tomorrow......

It's now a shell, tomorrow I am knocking down walls to enlarge the bathroom straight after that I've got to fit the new bathroom suite. Then plaster the bathroom and hallway. I'm betting it'll be a long day..... The new shed arrives tomorrow, I'll have to put that up the weekend after I've cleared the garden. Sounds like fun... I'm just writing crap now because I'm tired and need sleep.
Note to Self: Try to keep the Blog up to date so when the house is done and you are riding again you can say, Why the fuck did you do that and not stay put. The up hill battle is only just beginning.
